Social Issue Spread

Magazine spreads that covers a researched social issue. YSDN Communication Design 1, 2018.


With these page spreads, I used illustrations as this topic is quite sensitive and is difficult to photograph. I used the three painter’s primary colours (red, yellow, blue) as I found that they all work well together and they are all individually bold colours to help emphasize statements in these spreads.

I tried have visual information close to where the written information so that readers can understand the text better. This presented a challenge as I had to rearrange the text multiple times.
